A huge thank you to all of those who made the 17th Annual Sandy Golf and Tennis Tournament a big success.  Revenue and expenses are still being tallied, but to date, this year’s tournament has raised over $100,000 for need-based financial aid.
 
We could not have done it without our sponsors, golfers, tennis players, Alumni, volunteers, faculty, and staff.  A very special thank you goes out to Northern Trust for agreeing to be the Presenting Sponsor for three years in a row.

The tennis players were scheduled to play at 10:00 a.m. They were on the courts and ready to play when it began to rain. With great attitudes, the women changed gears and returned to the clubhouse to shop at the silent auction, catch up with friends, and have an early lunch, which included some very nice door prizes. A make-up tournament is being scheduled for Monday, February 12th, on Palmer Trinity’s brand new tennis courts.

The golfers showed up smiling and ready to have fun in spite of the weather. After registering, purchasing Mulligans, raffle tickets, and grabbing their goody bags, they headed out for a shotgun start at 12:00 p.m. The sun began to shine and a great day was had by all. Our players were well fed by Sports Grill and Sage Dining. Snacks to keep the players energized were delivered by volunteers. Bacardi, Tank Brewery, and Downstairs Beverages provided beverages throughout the day.

Once the golfers finished their game, they met in the clubhouse of Deering Bay for a cocktail reception, silent auction, and dinner. Head of School, Patrick Roberts, welcomed all to the Awards Reception and thanked everyone for their support. Michael Baiamonte, Chairman of the PTS Board of Trustees, emceed the evening.

The winning foursome, Stefano Diaz, Andres Pumariega, Javi Portal, and Jordan Portal were awarded prizes by Palmer Trinity School and Mercedes Benz. The evening was brought to a close with a live auction featuring a four night, five day stay in Casa de Campo and pulling raffle tickets for 8 incredible prizes.
